Usher talks Nicki Minaj relationship

Usher has opened up on his working relationship with Nicki Minaj.

The two stars recently teamed up for Usher's song 'She Came To Give It To You', whilst they had previously collaborated on 2010's 'Little Freak'.

Speaking to XXL Mag, the R&B icon said that their relationship has been strong for years.

Usher said: "Me and Nicki since 'Lil Freak', it’s been a great artist relationship, every time I bring her a record or an idea. The first time it was Polow [Da Don] and he brought her to me. After we made that connection, I was just waiting for the right moment, waiting for the right song and also keeping my line open as well if she ever felt something that she wanted to try.

"When I played her 'She Came To Give It To You', she has actually worked with Pharrell and had already started that dialogue. She loved it and she was on it. She was like, 'Give me a couple days and I’ll get it over to you', and she showed out."

Usher and Minaj meanwhile performed 'She Came To Give It To You' at the MTV VMAs in August.
